paprika question for rib rub

Discussion in 'Pork' started by ruggersal, Nov 14, 2007.

  1. I just made jeffs rub for some babybacks and realized I was out of paprika, but I used hungarian hot paprika instead. Has anyone ever used this on ribs. I left out the cayenne on this one.

    That's what I use anyway, but I've cut the amount of it in the mix by about half. It doesn't really do much for me except provide color.

    The Hunky paprika is in all ways superior in flavor to domestic brands, either sweet or hot. And hot is not all that hot. But it is for paprika heh.

    hungarian paprika is said to be the finest!
  8. thanks for the replies guys, I did use it and they came out good. It was my first time using jeffs recipe, but boy it was pretty spicy. I will use it again but probably cut it in half. My second batch of ribs on my ECB, and more tender than the last. I used 2-2-1 one for the baby backs. My smalller racks were done by the 2-2.

    Hungarian is the best, seconded by Spanish. Both will outdo the red and white can stuff by a mile. These two offer the regular coloring, but with much moer flavor. You made a good choice!

    I've been using this stuff for a few years now and really love the taste. It's not hot (I don't think) but it tastes great! I get it in half gallon containers and I'm always running out!
